Wreath-laying ceremony at the Vietnam War Memorial Wall

A Marine Corps bugler plays taps while Lt. Gen. Steven A. Hummer, commander of Marine Corps Forces Reserve and Marine Corps Forces North, salutes alongside Gold Star family member Sandra Mendez Ruiz during the wreath-laying ceremony in front of the traveling Vietnam War Memorial Wall at Voinovich Park in Cleveland June 12, 2012. The wreath-laying ceremonies will take place daily until Marine Week ends June 17. Ruiz laid the wreath in honor of her nephew Lance Cpl. David Alberto Mendez, who was killed in Iraq six years ago, as well as every fallen Marine from wars, both past and present. "When David died, I lost David, but I gained a family."
